Our excursions into the city were always better because we knew we had an amazing place to come back to. The hostel was comfortable and homely. the owner and staff were extremely cool and helpful and gave us some great recommendations. They were also very happy to chat with us about any topic under the sun. The location was great - just a 10 minute (thought rather uphill) walk to Taksim Square. And I loved the cats! The room was very spacious and clean and the beds were very comfortable. The owner was extremely accommodating and allowed our friend who turned up at the last minute to stay in our room - we thus had a 4 person room all to ourselves! Really loved this place.
